I don't see what thread you are referring to? I am not asking if a 18x9.5 front will fit I know that otherwise I wouldn't have bought them but now I am deciding on tires and want to go with PSS but the general consensus is they run wider than the normal tire so I am trying to find someone who has pictures and real feedback on the fitment of the 18x9.5 and 235/40 PSS dropped on coilovers

Hmm I am going to just do 235/265 PSS.. Hopefully I won't rub in front otherwise I will just get camber plates.. I have always heard that PSS run very wide, in your experience would you say that is true?

They do, if you run it will be slightly in front...PSS are big on the shoulders.

Do this to front:

I have seen 9.5 ET33 with 235 tires done before, but you may need to do a bit of modification for that to work.

From my research I have found that it will definitely fit but the biggest question now is if I will need camber plates or if I will be able to get away maxing out stock camber to not rub.. I am also not going to be completely slamming the car, I am looking for about a 1-1.5 finger gap.. I normally would have gone with the standard 8.5 and 9.5 front and rear but I didn't want to settle for flat face front and deep concave rear so I went with deep concave throughout. Thanks for the help!
